Well he could have been, but that was not my perception. Without a breathalyzer test, we will just probably never know if he was drunk or just pissed off. But your concluding that I am a partisan is inaccurate. The democrats think I am right wing tea party because I oppose abortion, gay marriage and more gun control. Ideologically, I am somewhat more aligned with republicans . The republikans think I am left wing because I disagree with their party first and governing second. The new republican party has become synonymous with corruption and tax breaks for the rich. I am not so much opposed to the persons as I am opposed to their actions. When any group steals from their own children for the benefit of gaining favor with the rich royalty who take over 80% their profits out of state, I will oppose them.

I don't know about you, but to me $500 million dollars in cuts amounted to many. How would I overhaul the system and stay within budget? The NC public school system is presently so administratively top heavy that it threatens to topple over. Most of the public never sees, and are therefore unaware of, the absolute army of administrative and "support" personnel. The public (and legislators I suppose) perceives that the system consists only of teachers because teachers are the only ones who actually come face to face with the public. Therefore the blame all problems on teachers, most of whom are already giving 100%. Because of the per student expenditure they think the teachers lazy , when they never consider that for every 39 teachers actually teaching children, there are 61 administrative and support personnel. Cutting cost where the rubber meets the road is not a good plan. I would restructure the administration and ADD teachers and resources to the classrooms -- and stay within budget..

To adjust the school system, as with any business, your must make adjustments in the plan. Doing the same old, same old, gets you the same old, same old. You have to eliminate here and add to there. You agree the system needs an overhaul, how would you accomplish that while staying within budget?

Another major but simple change would improve schools overall performance at least 10% over 2 years with no added expenditure. STOP USING OVER 6% OF EACH YEAR FOR TESTING AND START TEACHING THE SUBJECT MATERIAL INSTEAD OF TEACHING THE TEST.

Where did you read that teachers got a "pay cut"? The "budget" I read about said there would be no "raises for state employee's, but teachers would receive an additional 5 days vacation".

TSF keeps talking about a non existent pay cut, because he ASSUMES there is a pay cut.

Please locate for me ANY post where I said that teachers would get a pay cut. I have talked about the $500 million dollars cut to education which will result in approximately 4000 certified teachers being dismissed and 3800 teacher assistants getting either dismissed or placed on part time . You just ASSUMED that I said pay cut. Pay cut is different from fired, even though it amounts to the same thing.

I guess I'm too old for vocational rehabilitation into a lawyer, but sometimes wish I had gone to law school. An attorney friend of mine was bragging about making 30K by just writing one letter to an insurance company. The settlement was 100K and the attorney got 30% or 30K. Not bad for 10 minutes work writing a letter. For the client, I guess 70% of something is better than 100% of nothing.

I think I read that only two republicans voted against it and probably all democrats voted against. Its a sad day when the children and future of this state are made political cannon fodder
for ANY depraved political party or group. Sentencing the state to a future of ignorance and national ridicule will not attract industry or jobs. It will take many years for our state to recover AFTER these turds are voted out.

Republikans pass another bill stealing Charlotte's airport in an attempt to circumvent Charlotte's lawsuit and court order blocking the take over of the last bill. Now republikans in Raleigh are trying to subvert the NC court system in addition to bullying local governments..
I would think the courts would not look favorably on this underhanded move. In any case, all Charlotte has to do is file another lawsuit and ask for another restraining order. I believe the legislature has stepped in deep doodoo and even if they win the airport, they will also win the almost billion dollars in bond debt owed on the airport improvements.

Dictating to local governments , attempting to steal local assets, trying to subvert freedom of religion and now undermining the judicial branch of government with underfunding and under handed legislative actions. Proof positive of the kommunistic motives of the NC republikan legislature. These out of control and misguided juveniles need to be taken to the woodshed by the court system and the public at large. We should immediately schedule a recall election.

Teachers with masters degrees will be receiving $5,000 less this year than last year.

There are a LOT of other cuts that are going to need to be determined at the county level as well due to there being less funds.

As an indepent, non affiliated voter, I always vote for the person not the party, but when it comes to state legislature it looks like I will be voting Democrat for a while.

Hey bitch, If anyone knows about kissing ass it's you, cowgirl. I'm flying out to Texas to kidnap your drag queen ass and spank you, punk. You better get a 55 gallon drum of vaseline and pump your butt and mouth with it because when I get through with your perverted pedophile ass, I'll be screwing a dead body and calling you Boy George, you little bitch.
